Surrey GPS route
#1
Put my GPS on my bike for a ride, here is one of my normal loops with all my favorite sections.

Its 15miles long with 2000ft of climbing/descending, it took me 3hours with 1 short stop. The route should be perfect as i didnt make any mistakes and continued on the route from trail to trail.

There are some very steep sections but you can see them coming, there are a few jumps but you can go round them.

Longer more xc orientated GPS coming next week.

On the Garmin Connect site.

Im not grading them in technical difficulty as i feel that would be to hard for me to decide whats blue,red, black etc. Im just going to do them in distance but yes there are sections that would be classed as black.

The one i have done here is medium as it does relatively have alot of climbing in it. Some sections lesser ability riders wont be able to ride or will have to do if fairly slow, so i expect others will take maybe an hour or more longer than me, which would make this ride about 4hours ish.

Would you say a 4hour ride is a medium length ride? or should i call this one Easy and do a longer and even longer one?

One of my favourites too, and when I rode it last week I managed to hit a tree and go over the bars in the wood section, then pinch flat and dent my rim on the final rocky descent. I blame the rear tyre for both of these incidents!


This is generally my route too. I find its a 3 hour ish loop, and always over four when I have taken groups round.
